I hope that you all had such a wonderful holiday season!
It has been so hard for me to get back into a regular routine . . . I just want to stay in my pajamas all day, watch Christmas movies, and drink hot cocoa.
Instead I am trying to clean up the mess leftover from Christmas and prepare for the next party: New Years! I love making fudge and little candies for our New Years Eve party and these little snowballs are always a big hit (plus, they are incredibly simple to make!).
Peanut Butter Snowballs
1 cup powdered sugar
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 lb white chocolate candy coating (or almond bark – I find this at the grocery store near the chocolate chips)
sugar sprinkles (optional- I used silver sugar sprinkles on top of mine)
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine sugar, peanut butter and butter – mix well. Line a large cookie sheet with wax paper and shape dough into 1″ balls; place balls on wax paper. Chill dough balls in the fridge for about 30 minutes or until firm.
In another medium-sized bowl, melt candy coating according to directions on package (I usually microwave mine for 30-second intervals, stirring each time, until completely melted and smooth). Dip balls and place on wax paper. If you want, sprinkle the tops with sprinkles. Place balls back into the fridge to set up.
Makes about 24-30 snowballs.
